Step 3: Trade & Licensing Information – This screen moves from Part A – to Part E. Each step must be completed before moving on to the next step.
One primary trade is required. Up to 10 Additional trades may be entered based upon the work your business performs.
If the state and/or local law in which your business is working requires a license for the entered trade, a business license will be required by VIVE. Please note: VIVE is not requiring a business license, but a professional or trade license. State and/or local law mandates what license type is required. At times, a business license doubles as a trade license. Failure to upload a valid professional or trade license will prevent VIVE from being able to approve your business.
